US will not impose conditions on support for Israel to defend itself -VP Harris

BLETCHLEY PARK, England (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday said the United States would not seek to impose any conditions on the support it gives Israel to defend itself in the wake of the Oct. 7 attacks by militant group Hamas.

"We are not going to create any conditions on the support that we are giving Israel to defend itself," Harris told a news conference in Britain following the conclusion of an AI Safety Summit.

"We are going to continue to stand with Israel's right to defend itself and, let's be clear and never forget what happened on Oct. 7, where hundreds, thousands, 1400, innocent people were killed, slaughtered. Young people who were simply attending a concert."
